BizTalk Innovation Day Norway

About my session…

Last year I had the opportunity to talk about BizTalk Mapping Patterns and Best Practices, this session led me to write a book about this topic, a book that I have been writing for the past 12 months… more news will be released during the event.

This year I decide not to choose any topic and leave this task to the host of the event. So I ask Tord Glad Nordahl, please choose a topic that the Norwegian community wants to hear me speak, that pleases and interest them, I can speak about whatever you want! So it’s not my fault that Tord chose a similar topic … my session will be this year about transformation in BizTalk Services, here is the abstract:

Migrating current BizTalk Server projects to BizTalk Services or starting new BizTalk Services projects can provide some challenges because although the developing experience is very similar, we are still talking about a new integration platform on Azure, and one of the main differences in the way we apply messages transformation with the new Transform Designer.

In this session, we will see the main differences between BizTalk Mapper Design (BizTalk Server) and the Transform Designer (BizTalk Services) and will address several other topics as:

  • How can we migrate existing maps by using the BizTalk Map Migration Tool and what are the limitations?
  • Can we use the existent maps in BizTalk Services projects?

However, mainly we address and explain how you can apply some common mapper problems, how the editor works, what are the functionalities and hopefully you will enhance new skills on BizTalk Services transformations

    1. There is something that we plan to do in the future but we still have to get some local support and sponsorship. This year we have a BizTalk Summit in Australia with some of us… maybe next year we can do the same in US with the all BizTalkCrew members.
